The Beverly Hillbillies, The Musical
Based on the television program created by Paul Henning. Book by David Rogers and Amanda Rogers. Music and lyrics by Gregg Opelka.

Cast: 10m., 12w. With doubling 7m., 9w. Extras as desired. Granny, Jed, Jethro, Elly May, Mr. and Mrs. Drysdale and Jane Hathaway—all your favorites from the '60s TV comedy—are back—and this time they're singin'! When Jed Clampett becomes an overnight millionaire, thanks to the discovery of oil on his little Ozark patch of land, he decides to pack up the truck and move the family to Beverly Hills, California. Hilarious hijinks ensue as the Clampetts adjust to high society and, more importantly, as high society adjusts to those ever-unpredictable, fish-out-of-water hillbillies from back east. Local banker Milburn Drysdale and his faithful girl Friday secretary, Jane Hathaway, quickly take control of Jed's finances and do everything to make the Clampetts—and their prized bank account—stay right there in Beverly Hills. But the banker's efforts are imperiled when a couple of crafty con artists cook up a scheme to hoodwink Jed out of his not-so-hard-earned millions. Meanwhile, Jethro's got girl problems (if you call having three beautiful babes chasing you simultaneously a problem), Elly's got growing-up pains, and Granny just wants to go back home to the simple butter-churnin' life she knows and loves. Despite watching his "black gold" turning quickly into blackmail, Jed Clampett remains unruffled because he knows that, in the end, a country boy's always quicker than a city slicker. With a hilarious script by Tony-nominee David Rogers and score by award-winning songwriter Gregg Opelka, this down-home, boot-stompin' extravaganza will send your audience home happier than a boll weevil in a cotton field. Two int. sets. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours.
